Out of State Drivers

Pennsylvania is extremely strict about drivers and their driving records. Even if you get a ticket for violating traffic rules far away from home, they will find out about this. PennDOT will add points to the record of an out of state driver. If you find yourself receiving a traffic ticket in another state, call a Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney to advise you.

Getting points added to your license is not at all uncommon here, but the kind of disadvantages it brings in along with it cannot be ignored. Fighting your ticket with the help of a reputed Pittsburgh traffic ticket lawyer is always advisable. A good lawyer can help you out of this kind of situation. If you contact Logue Law Group, we will assign an esteemed traffic ticket lawyer to handle your case. Do not delay in taking the first step once you get a ticket.

Multi-State Information Exchange

There is a 46-state agreement called the Driver License Compact (DLC), and Pennsylvania is a part of this agreement. This enables the states to exchange information regarding convictions and moving violations. And all of the information is accessible by all the states.

PennDOT or Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will be notified if you are alleged of violating traffic rules in any of the states that are a part of the DLC. Your driving records will start accumulating points immediately. Under this agreement, it is said that Pennsylvania will suspend your license if the other state (where the mishap took place) does so.

Even if there is any minor traffic offense, then also it will be reported to PennDOT, but points would not be added to your record in that case unless you possess a commercial driver’s license. If your driving license gets suspended in another state, then this piece of information would be accessible by all, through a national database known as National Driving Register. Plus, your insurance company will react in the same way, irrespective of the place of the traffic offense. Your car premium rates will rise, even if it is out of state. You should always contact a criminal lawyer so that your rights as an out of state driver are protected and you do not end up paying hefty premium amounts. Plus, there are also high chances that your license would get suspended. While paying fines and accepting points are sometimes the best route to go, it is not always advisable; instead, you should hire a good attorney and start fighting your ticket.

Make sure you retain a good criminal lawyer in the Pittsburgh area as this would not only help in getting a clean driving record but also would help you save a lot on your future insurance premium amounts.

It cannot be stressed enough how important it is for you to call an attorney to help you right away. If you wait, you may find yourself in a mess that a lawyer cannot fix.
